Dr. Balthrop and his staff were simply outstanding! From my first visit to the time of my OUTPATIENT hip replacement yesterday everything was as professional as a well oiled machine, but also personalized. My assigned nurse called this morning to check on me. Almost no pain at all. It has been a day and a half and my main concern is not overdoing my movement, cause I feel like I could generally do anything I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. Balthrop and his first rate staff!

He is a very conscientious doctor who spends adequate time making sure that his patients understand his diagnoses. He addresses patients' concerns and always has treated us as we expect professionals to do. There have been times when he advised surgery (for my husband once and for me once) and other times when he has advised other treatment. Both times, our surgeries were very successful. I trust his judgment.

But I knew how good he was because he had done my Mom's in 2005 and she never had a bit of trouble either. I am thankful.
